Demand 5

Channel Five have updated the Demand 5 iOS. The update adds support for the iPhone 5’s bigger screen and implements a new DRM system. Channel 5 say the new Digital Rights Management system is a requirement by “larger studios and production companies” so they can bring you more shows. I am sure DRM was built into the app already so I wonder what prompted the additional security?

The app is free and available in the iTunes app store


What’s New in Version 2.3.0

• We’ve implemented a new Digital Rights Management system that meets the security requirements set by the larger studios and production companies, which means we can bring you even more shows.
• Support for iPhone 5. Making the most of the bigger screen.
